Dear friends,

We would like to introduce you the Live Search add-on.
 
live-search-presentation.gif

The "Live Search" add-on is a sophisticated module which allows your customers to search products using a simple search form and receive the results instantly with the help of Ajax technology. Add-on sends one request only after a customer has finished character entering, so the search process does not overload your server. We developed special cache system to optimize search process as well. We tested search on the store with 35 000 products which are translated into 24 languages. We recommend you to see the video tutorial that we have prepared for this add-on.
Please do not forget to rebuild cache after add-on is installed. Go to Admin panel top menu > Live search > Live search cache and click the Rebuild cache button.
We also recommend you configure Cron job for cache rebuilding. Just add the following command in Cron Jobs:
wget -q "http://YOUR_DOMAIN/l...ord=PASSWORD"  

Features:

  • various templates to display search field (rounded corners, underlined field, overlay and animated effects, option to show field in dropdown);
  • includes sorting of displayed search results according to priority of fields in the database;
  • optimized speed due to Internal Cache system;
  • tested with 35 000 products which are translated into 24 languages;
  • a special system of the fields weight for the relevant search
  • cache products functionality with the usage of the special page and cron script;
  • automatically caching after the product is created/updated/deleted;
  • ability to turn on using cache for live search and regular search separately;
  • search request history with detailed information about search patterns and their frequency;
  • ability to clear search history, ability to delete separate search phrase;
  • ability to determine the minimum number of characters required for starting search;
  • ability to show/hide ajax loader for live search process;
  • ability to offer some suggestions according to the characters typed;
  • the ability to postpone the initiation of the search process for some time;
  • easily adjusted search area (search is available in keywords, features, options, product codes, categories (new!), subcategories;
  • ability to add stop words to a product to exclude it from search results;
  • easily adjusted search results area (number of products, product codes and prices, presence and width of thumbnails, the Add to cart button with the Quick view and Add to cart functionality;
  •  ability to export / import stop-words via .csv files.

This add-on is a great alternative to Searchings’ however it missing some important features such as “Stop Words”, where users can add stop words to products they don’t want to appear in search results under certain keywords.

For instance I have 100 products named “bigman” and other products named “man”, so every time customers search for “man”; the “bigman” products also show up in search results. So my customers getting irrelevant search results.

Dear Cart-Power, please consider to add this function in the next release – I will be more then happy to pay again for upgrade.

Does the add-on also makes it possible to search on the custom-made features items (same as used in te filter). Currently it is not possible to display items based on the names or numbers from the features allocated to the product

It is possible to configure search by short description, full description, keywords, product code. Do you mean ability to choose these options for customers?

in the admin I can go to products --> features and add a new feature. For example I have a winestore and one of the features is "year". 2010, 2011, 2012 etc.

I can use the feature as a filter. But the search option in cs-cart does not search bij features.So if I search on 2010 which is allocated to a product it will not find the product. Am I right? The only option I have is to put the featues of every product in the keywords bar of the product.

Does your add-onn makes it possible to configurated it to also include the features of the product in the search results

Thanks, Cart-Power.

I will wait for the next release, i hope you will consider this in short time so more people will enjoy this addon.

I agree, it will save us tons of time if we can search by product "Options" as well, rather than include those keywords from options. If the search results can also include "images" of product options then this will help as well in terms of accessibility.

Does this work with CS 4.2.?

Also, will it work with responsive theme?

Right now your site doesn't mention either.
